There are times when we absolutely need to know our network or Wi-Fi speeds. Are we really getting the speeds we’re paying for? Are we really getting LTE speeds? We can use speed test apps to check. The latest one that we have just come across is SpeedChecker. It’s developed by Speedchecker Ltd, the company behind the most popular speed testing websites measuring over 100 million speed tests globally.

According to the store listing, SpeedChecker is trusted by the BBC, Guardian and other media outlets, ISPs and Governments. Let’s take a look at their app for Windows Phone 8.

Speedtest.net is the must-have app if you’re curious about data speeds on your Windows Phone. Based off of the site of the same name, the official app finally came to Windows Phone 8 in January and quickly received a bug fix shortly thereafter.

Version 1.1 is now live in the Store and it brings two new tings to the table, including a fix to a bug that “caused cell network tests to be seen as Wi-Fi tests”. That’s certainly useful and good to know.

Yesterday we mentioned the Speedtest.net had released a Windows Phone 8 app but many were receiving network communications errors that prevented them from using the app.

The developers work frantically to identify and resolve the issue and the app appears to be working as it should. We have confirmed that Speedtest.net is working on the Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC 8X over WiFi and cellular signals.

For those curious as to what their mobile speed is, you can give BandWidth a shot. Developed by microhaxo from XDA, the app hits the usual servers for your upload/download rates. Pros fo the program included the ability to select servers based on location (including international), data size (small or large) and history for future comparison.

The app is free, no ads and is pretty sharp looking. Only issue we had was with our upload over AT&T's 3G--for sometimes it didn't work (but it did fine over WiFi). Anyways, if you think it's your thing, you can grab it here in the Marketplace.
